THEME: Social games as a tool of youth work

The main goal of training course is to presents participants with different types of social games which they can use as a tool in their youth work.

We have been playing since we were children. Through the play we get to know ourselves, the world around us and we learn. Therefore, play is one of the basic forms of education and relaxation, and at the same time it can serve as an effective pedagogical tool. Social games include those games that, instead of competition, focus on social relations between people and raise the level of self-awareness and social sensibility through the element of conversation about what happened to the participants during the game.

-We will play a lot and learn about the power of play.
-We will get to know games which increase cooperation and trust. Learn about games which help us solve conflicts, improve our communication and help us tackle various issues such as differences, self esteem….
-We will learn about group dynamics and discover what is our role in the group.
-We will share our knowledge and learn how to lead games.
